    The two men, a father and his son, were sitting on the terrace drinking alcohol but that was not to the liking of the owner, who is against alcohol because of his religion. The argument turned into a serious fight.

    “The manager had approached the men about their behavior and then a scuffle started. It looked like a massive brawl but apparently there were also a lot of bystanders.”

    “The two men were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries. One of them also had a broken arm, so the consequences can be termed serious,” said spokesman Wouter Bruyns.

    It appears from the video that the two men were also hit with chairs as they tried to leave the establishment.

    Conservative politician Filip Dewinter, member of Vlaams Belang, posted a video of the brawl on Twitter. He also interviewed the 62-year-old Eddie, pensioner and victim of the attack.

    According to Eddie, they had ordered sandwiches, and had brought along their own drinks because the establishment does not sell alcohol. Soon some 15 Muslim men started attacking the pair because they were drinking alcohol.

    It seems odd to be attacked for drinking alcohol in Antwerp, since beer is one of the city’s main attractions with literally hundreds of craft beers available from the many breweries situated there.

    De Winter urged Flemish residents to vote against the city’s rising crime. He called the immigrants “crimmigrants” saying they were responsible for the increase in criminality.

    The video is extremely hard to find on YouTube, suggesting that there may be a deliberate attempt at suppressing visual material that contradicts the government’s official narrative.

    In Kortrijk, next to Antwerp, the Vlaams Belang organised a rally over the weekend against a planned mega mosque. Neighbourhood protests against 5200 m2 large new mosque that will cost €4.8 million have steadily been growing.
